The update has leaked online and can already be found available for download, a post on Android Police reads. Furthermore, new radios for the device also emerged online, as Droid-life notes.
Users should keep in mind that this is not a standalone ROM, and that they will need to be running the official Android 4.1.1 build in order to install the leaked package. It can be flashed using a custom recovery or the “adb sideload” method via a PC.
